Arms raise over head
The heart quickens
Heat fills inner and outer ventricles
The breath softens
Opening the heart
The seat of the soul
Into a vast space of peace
It is a different kind of surrender
The willing surrender of loving kindness
Honor and respect
The kind of surrender that generates power from within
To overcome the apocalyptic’s addiction to annihilation
